Transplant Facilities Follow Ups
I had a kidney transplant 28 years ago (5/12/94) at Stands University of Florida. Thankfully I've done well for the most part. I have a local Nephrologist I see annually as well a annual visits to Shands for visit with the Transplant photo physicians. I've done this for 28 yrs. I know the reason I've done so well is due to my regular visits with the Transplant physician. They have picked up on things missed by my local Nephrologist.
Recently I received a letter that Shands will no longer see patients 3 years post transplant! I'm very upset and worry I may run into issues being Nephrologist are kidney Physicians but not transplant specialists thus miss things.
Do you still see your Transplant physician in addition to your local Nephrologist?
Has anyone encountered this with their Transplant facility?
